The Setai Miami Beach

The Setai Miami Beach offers a slice of serenity in the midst of all the South Beach action. An award- winning leader in hospitality, this hotel blends the warmth of Asian hospitality with the charm of its original Art Deco façade. There’s also a five-star spa, a trio of breathtaking infinity pools, beachfront and courtyard cocktail lounges, and three exceptional fine dining experiences - Jaya, The Ocean Grill, and The Bar & Courtyard - led by Executive Chef Vijayudu Veena.

    Faena Hotel

    Faena Hotel Miami Beach isn’t just a resort destination, it sits inside the six-block Faena District in Mid-Beach conceived by legendary developer Alan Faena. There you’ll also find the 43,000-square-foot Faena Forum, a collection of unique event spaces and an amphitheater designed by Rem Koolhaas and Shohei Shigematsu. A reinvention of the Art Deco 1950s Saxony Hotel, the Faena boasts a decadent “Cathedral” lobby, a 150-seat gilded theatre featuring sultry cabaret shows, and the 22-thousand square foot Tierra Santa Healing House. The resort offers a variety of fine dining options, including open-fire cooking at Los Fuegos by Francis Mallmann, Filipino-inspired dishes at Pao by Paul Qui, and beautiful outdoor ambience at the tropical Veranda.

      St. Regis Bal Harbour

      Nestled in the exclusive village of Bal Harbour, this captivating resort combines the legacy of St. Regis with Miami's celebrated beaches and aquamarine waters- just steps from the prestigious Bal Harbour Shops and a short drive from South Beach. This hotel features Yabu Pushelberg-designed interiors, 1000-feet of pristine beach access, and 5-star service at the Remède Spa. Guests can indulge in the resort’s three different dining options - Atlantikos, BH Burger Bar, and La Gourmandise - and even take part in the iconic St. Regis tradition: sabering a bottle of champagne to celebrate the transition of day to night.

        Acqualina Resort & Spa

        Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach is one of the most extravagant hotels in Miami, located on 4.5 pristine beachfront acres. Reminiscent of a Mediterranean villa with its leisure-focused lifestyle and grand design, Acqualina boasts three oceanfront swimming pools, spacious meeting rooms, and a 20,000-square-foot spa. Old-world charm can be found everywhere from the lavish gold gates and Baroque fountain to the marble columns and glittering chandeliers. Acqualina’s AQ Chop House and Costa Grill, led by chefs Andre Sattler and Michele Mazza, add to the Mediterranean charm with indulgent Italian flavors and beachside ambience.

          Surrounded by stunning water and city views, Mandarin Oriental, Miami brings the essence of Five-Star luxury to Brickell Key. Mandarin Oriental’s award-winning holistic spa, elegantly appointed rooms (complete with marble bathtubs), and unparalleled views of Biscayne Bay and the downtown Miami skyline make this one of Miami’s best.
